Moving shadow ink is by far the best tattoo experience that I have ever had. The atmosphere of the waiting room is very welcoming and inviting and the quality of the art that is done there is through the roof. They have great customer service and they are very professional but also make you feel comfortable during your tattoo experience. I will definitely be back for more!

Jon Reiter did my tattoo and he was just amazing! It was my first tattoo ever and i wouldn't go to any other artist! Jon was so friendly, polite and very attentive. He took his time with me, answered all of my questions, calmed me down, gave me time to take breaks. Very understanding, i really liked it! The tattoo itself turned out IDENTICAL to the picture i gave him! I am just so pleased and will be recommending Solid State and Jon to everybody! Thank you

Guys!! Sam is freaking awesome. I had a tattoo I despised, in a less than ideal space (ribs) and in an even lesser ideal color for a cover up (all black). Not only did she listen to what I was looking for and design something absolutely amazing, but she ended up covering the original tattoo in the first session... like to the point where no one would even know the tattoo isn't 100% complete unless I told them. On top of it, she's a super friendly, great person. I HIGHLY recommend her. I couldn't
